Computer-Aided Design Drafters and Technicians
If you are a high school student, take courses that provide you
with a solid background in algebra, geometry, trigonometry,
physics, machine-shop skills, drafting, and electronics, and take
whatever computer courses are available-especially those in
computer-aided design. You should also take courses in English and
speech, especially those that improve your communication skills.
Any courses that help you develop your critical-thinking skills
will be useful since CAD technicians must be able to read and
understand complex engineering diagrams and drawings.
